Which was in a windows box, as a backup data drive.

drwxrwxrwx 1 opus opus 16384 Jan 1 1980 drive1

How can I change the date. It is giving me wrong date writing errors.

whoa there, how are you mounting it? and does it spit anything to /dev/console or in /var/log about errors when mounting? what file system?

Whoa where? :o)

mount -t msdos /dev/ad2s2 ~/drive2

I was curious what windows woudl find so I stuck it on a machine. I couldnt delete the files there either. I scan disked or whatever they call it and it found some badness and fixed it I guess. Stuck it back in here and seems to be fine. The date is still 1980 though. Heck, thats even way before your time!

The only thing in the log is about the date.
